Biology faculty candidate to present seminar April 23
Kathryn Yurkonis, a faculty candidate for the Biology Department, will present a seminar titled "Connecting pattern and process: Effects of initial plant arrangement on grassland establishment" at noon Friday, April 23, in 105 Starcher Hall. All are welcome to attend.
Yurkonis’ research aims to understand how grassland communities assemble and change through time by integrating aspects of restoration and spatial ecology. Yurkonis joins us from the University of Guelph where she is currently a post-doctoral fellow with the Long-Term Impacts of Endophytic Fungi experiment. She received her Ph.D. from Iowa State University and will be discussing her research on the effects of plant pattern in Iowa’s tallgrass prairies.
